The good news my pipe is fixed, and I did the bulk of the work (with heavy coaching). I really like solving plumbing problems, and all the goo and tools used in the process (not talking about stopped up toilets). My plumber-friend said he'd hire me as an apprentice when my other work is slow, but that he knows himself, is on marriage #3, and can't be trusted. I'm disappointed, but glad to avoid a situation.
The bad news is that I climbed in to a very small space, and fell a little once in, landing hard on my lower tailbone. It hurts like a m-fer now. And I smashed my fingers moving the dryer (second smash within two days).
I never wear a bra, so my panties don't match. But I almost always wear socks in pairs.
Dogs and nature abhor a vacuum.
